## Pinocchio Paradox Riddle

Hint:

His nose did grow when he said it would, but his nose is only supposed to grow when he lies, and his nose would grow even though he told the truth, and the paradox appears to exist again.

You can prove that's not true because he created a self fulfilling prophecy when he said his nose was going to grow bigger because saying that was saying he was going to lie.

In order to lie; he had to tell the truth, and say that he was lying, when he was really telling the truth, which would be a lie.

He did say he was lying because he said his nose was going to grow, and even though he said he was lying, he was actually telling the truth; which means he was lying about lying, or lying about not telling the truth.

His nose did grow, and he did tell the truth, but he said he was lying when he was telling the truth, which was the lie that made his nose grow.

Since his nose didn't grow after he told the truth, but after he lied about not telling the truth; the paradox doesn't exist.

That second answer actually works for both scenarios, where as the first answer only works for the first scenario, so I suppose you can say the second answer is the correct one.

YES NO
